Magickal Form: Meat, Shell
Eat crabmeat to protect home and family. Use the shell of the horseshoe crab for real estate magick. Stuff the empty shell with lavender and sage to protect your dwelling. This is particularly effective when you are in danger of losing a space because of financial problems. If you are buying or renting property and need to come up with a down payment, stuff the crab shell with cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and sea salt.
